Big Day Out 2014 Cancels Second Sydney Date

Big Day Out organisers have announced this morning that they perhaps bit off more than they could chew when they announced two shows for the Sydney leg of the festival, and will now be scaling down the festivities to one action-packed day.

Fortunately, Sydney cats will still have the opportunity to celebrate Australia Day in style, with the festival now taking place on Sunday, 26th January only.

If you’re stuck holding onto a ticket for the 27th gig, don’t stress – your ticket will still be valid for the remaining show and, if you can’t make it, refunds will be available form your point of purchase.

At the time of publish, tickets to the Sunday, 27th January show are still available, however promoter Ken West advises that, due to the merging of the dates, tickets are now expected to sell out much faster so don’t leave it until the last minute.

You can check out the Big Day Out 2014 lineup so far right here, and the full statement below. The second lineup announcement expected to be announced very soon.

Statement Re:

Hi all,

Perhaps we were a bit ambitious expanding to two dates in Sydney for this year’s Big Day Out…

The Sydney Big Day Out show scheduled for Monday, January 27 will now be merged into one show on Sunday, January 26, Australia Day.

Fans who purchased tickets for the Monday, January 27 show will have three options:

You can use your January 27 ticket for the January 26 festival – there is no need to exchange your tickets if you wish to attend the Big Day Out on Sunday 26 January as they are automatically valid.

You can get a full refund until October 30, 2013 – information is listed below.

You can exchange your 27 January ticket(s) for any other (Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide or Perth) Australian Big Day Out festival – information is listed below.

Tickets will remain available for the Sunday, January 26 BDO show in Sydney through our Website at and through Ticketmaster until sold out.

While we are looking into a possible expanded capacity for the 26 January, given the merge of the two shows, tickets to January 26 are anticipated to sell out much earlier so do not delay if you have not already purchased.

We look forward to celebrating Australia Day with you… it’s going to be an AMAZING day and evening of music.

Ken West
